Consensus: A clever and offbeat character study about two people discovering each other.

It's neither as romantic nor as thrilling as it should be. But it offers plenty to ponder and chew on as its unusual relationship slowly unfolds.

It's erotic, suspenseful and built around two surprising characters. Even better, it doesn't feel like every other thriller we've ever seen.

Nick Schager
Lessons of Darkness

May be the finest thriller/romance hybrid of the new century.
